    Current hot topic in US is accusations against many public school teachers that they are teaching and encouraging inappropriate behavior among small children (less than 10 years) all in the name of creating 'safe space for LGBT' and protecting children from 'sexual harassment'.
    Grooming typically starts like this. Teacher (usually a woman and without informing parents) starts by changing hair color, using pronouns (she/her or they/them), ask kids to decorate class with rainbows etc. Then there is a class discussion on how some women like women and some women like men and some men like men. Teacher asks kids who like same gender person to lift their hands and openly praises anyone who 'comes out' saying they are very brave and what they are feeling is perfectly normal. This is followed by 'appropriate' and 'inappropriate' touch, its perfectly normal to touch if both of them like it. These lessons create curiosity in minds of young kids. Then teacher invites kids to 'books club' or 'reading club' after school. Parents are usually kept in dark about it and if asked they will say its for improving grammar or vocabulary. These books go into great detail about LGBT acts and how society does not like particular 'acts'. All this is described in great detail. Time and again kids are reminded of 'safe space' and keeping everything a secret. A good number of kids begin to openly experiment and touch and once again the behavior is 'encouraged' not shouted down.
    I find most Indian parents are either completely unaware and think schools are teaching 'biology' or 'English'. No one cares about 'rainbow flags' or 'safe spaces'. Those that have some idea are arguing that children need to know all this and its better to teach them. Unfortunately the school teacher is 'grooming' the child, i.e. preparing the child to shed inhibitions and open them up to future acts by encouraging them, that is never 'good' for the child

    They should hide their kids in a cave till they are 18, so they don’t get exposed to the horrors of people who might be different from them.

    That is a somewhat rude reply, we are sending children to school to get educated not to 'loosen' them up for fun. So you think its appropriate for an adult (specially a teacher) to ask a boy or girl below 10 to open up and touch others just to introduce LGBT people?

    I think you’re not looking for an honest debate and you’re just being inflammatory.

    Its a serious concern, nothing 'inflammatory' about it. These things are happening in most US schools to some degree, whether you agree or not

    I hope you are joking, its all over the news and is also an election issue, just one example "Public schools are grooming your children", not looking for an argument here, just want to hear from those who are concerned and what you are doing about it
